Mountain Man from the hit reality show “Duck Dynasty” is set to host the 11th annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 17 in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Tim Guraedy, the man known for his monotone voice on A&E’s reality show has been named the official starter for the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
“We thought it would be a nice touch to have a guy be the official starter who talks so slowly that the parade could be over by the time he tells the crowd his name,” Steve Arrison, CEO of Visit Hot Springs, said in a press release. “Mountain Man fits the bill perfectly.”
Actor and director Jim Belushi will serve as the parade’s grand marshal.
According to Hot Springs Daily the famous parade is the 98-foot length of Bridge Street, which is the world’s shortest everyday-use street.
The first ever First Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade was held on March 17, 2004. Last year former celebrity Grand Marshals, John Corbett and Bo Derek returned to Hot Springs for the tenth parade.
